Hi,
We have tried to install SQL server 2000 on a Windows
server 2003 Cluster. When Install program for SQL tries to
start the remote installation it fails and generate the
following error:
"Setup Failed to Perform Required Operations on the
Cluster Nodes".

We have installed the cluster according to Microsoft
recommendations and both nodes are members in AD 2003. We
have found that the installation fails before remote
installation on both nodes starts

I'll attach the contents of both SQLSTP.log and
Documents.log

What does the log from the other node say? There are two
sqlstp.log files (one for each node). This one only is
the node you initiated setup from.

Does the second node have access to the CD-ROM? Where are
you installing from?

It appears that setup is indeed failing on the remote setup portion.
However we do not know if it is on node 1 or node 2. There should be a
sqlstpx.log (where x is a number) on both nodes. This should have
additional information about where the failure is.

A few things to check.

First, log in to each of the node consoles both with the SQL service account
and the account you are running the installation from. Install expects a
temp path based in the logged-in user that launched the install as a target
to copy the files to before launching the actual remote installation. If
you haven't logged in to the target node, Windows may not have created the
profile correctly and the temporary directory won't exist. I haven't found
a KB article on this, but I ran into it personally. Of course, make sure
your installation login is a domain-level accoutn with local admin
priveleges on each node.

Also make sure you have followed this KB article if you are not installing a
default instance:

Windows 2003-Based Cluster Fails
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;815431&Product=sql2k

Finally, install won't work on clusters of more than four nodes.

Hello all,

thank you for your many responses.

We found the problem. Uninstalling Terminal Services solved the problem.

We made the mistake to install Terminal Services for remote administration
like in Win2k. But this is not necessary anymore in W2k3 and Terminal
Services is a non-aware cluster application.

Installing SQL Virtual Server with TS leads to 'misplaced' setup files, i.e.
setup.iss is supposed to lie in %windir%, but ends upp in the user directory
under Documents and Settings.

The installation process actually never came so far to start the seperate
threads for the nodes, so there were no sqlstpx.log files. Remote
Installation failed right away in the beginning when trying to read the
configuration file. Remsetup.exe left the log file C:\Documents.log,
stating, that NumRemoteServers could not be read from [args].

Unfortunately I do not have the link to KB by hand. But post another message
and I'll send it to the group later.

Kind regards
Richard

NOTE: we did install directly from the consol, not via TS :), but still TS
made the installation fail

I agree with Richard. SQL 2K virtual server install fails on Win 2K3
cluster with Terminal Services installed.

This problem is documented in Microsoft Knowledge Base article

SQL Server 2000 Cluster Does Not Install on Windows Server 2003-Based
Computers Where Terminal Services Is Installed
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=301520

The first log that was posted had the contents of sqlstp.log file. The part
that tells the setup failed is


10:51:55 C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\SqlSetup\Bin\remsetup.exe C:\Documents and
Settings\cyadmin\WINDOWS\remsetup.ini
10:51:56 Process Exit Code: (-1)
10:51:56 Begin Action : GetRemsetupRetCode
10:51:56 Installation return status on SIDDB01 : -1
10:51:56 Installation return status on SIDDB02 : -1
10:51:56 End Action : GetRemsetupRetCode

Notice that in the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 301520 also has a
similar error snippet

13:28:59 C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\SqlSetup\Bin\remsetup.exe C:\Documents and
Settings\user name\WINDOWS\remsetup.ini
13:28:59 Process Exit Code: (-1)
13:28:59 Begin Action : GetRemsetupRetCode
13:28:59 Installation return status on HQUCHBI040 : -1
13:28:59 Installation return status on HQUCHBI041 : -1
